Course syllabus

The aim of the course is to give the student the tools needed to combine multiple unit operations in an industrial process and to study the dependence between unit operations and how the total resource is affected when key parameters are varied.

The course is structured around a number of themes. The course covers design of industrial processes using flowsheeting programs and contains in-depth sections on phase equilibria, distillation, physical transport processes and energy conversion, multi-component distillation, absorption and evaporation. Energy and environmental aspects are illustrated by the section on energy, energy production, water and waste management, as well as gas purification. Also included is optimization of industrial processes with respect to energy efficiency and environmental impact.

The course setup is depicted below, where themes, study visits, project and calculation tasks are shown.
